Wife gives evidence

THE wife of an accused gave evidence in a rape trial which has seen the number of accused reduced from five to two.

Her husband and his co-worker are alleged to have raped the complainant after a party at the accused's house in Nasinu.

The wife told the court her husband and his co-accused arrived with the complainant and other workmates in a drunk state to their home and consumed another carton of beer.

She said the co-accused had slept and she tried to help the drunk complainant have a shower so she could go with the workmates who were leaving.

The woman said the workmates asked if the complainant could spend the night and go the next day.

She said after helping the complainant shower and change, she left her in a room and had a talk with her husband at the back of the house after which she left for the neighbour's house to smoke a cigarette.

She said on her way back to her house, she saw a couple lying down in the cassava patch next to her house.

She said she tried to excuse herself when she saw a man without any pants run from the scene. She added the man was her husband and the woman was the complainant dressed in just a T-shirt and undergarments.
